This study aims at examining the indoor environment of three different preschools as a pedagogical tool for the independence of children. Is the design of the premises adapted to the height of the children? Can they themselves reach the material they need and is it possible for them to reach their outdoor clothes or do they constantly have to ask for help? In order to acquire a deeper understanding of the different views of the three preschools, the question is asked: what are the pedagogues thoughts of the indoor environment of their own preschool in the perspective of childrens independence and what affects their choice of furnishing, planning etc? The preschool curriculum clearly states that the children must be given the opportunity to develop their independence. We have experianced that the pedagogues feel that they are unable to plan the environment as they wish and thus, interest is also pointed towards the question: are there any limiting factors that affect the design of the indoor environment, and, that being the case, which are they?

 

The study is based on qualitative observations and interviews because it is in its interest to discern patterns and categories rather than quantity. First, the premises of the preschools were observed, and then two pedagogues at each preschool were interviewed separately about their views on the indoor environment of their preschool. The study showed that the three preschools are focusing on designing the indoor environment according to the current group of children, yet are limited by such things as: Premises, Economy, Time and The age of the children. In spite of these limitations, the observations showed that most of the material and furnishing was adapted to the height of the children, which leads to icreased independence.
